According to Bell of Lost Souls, it is rumoured that…
According to Games Workshop USA Sales Representative Mark Koscielniak, the new Warhammer 40k 5th Edition Starter Boxed Set will include a “Crap-Ton of miniatures”.The new boxed starter, due out in September of this year, will include the popular “mini-rulebook”, dice, measuring sticks and the proverbial French “Crap-Ton” of miniatures including:
1– Space Marine Commander (full sprue)
1– Space Marine Tactical Squad (10 models)
1– Space Marine Terminator Squad (5 models)
1– Space Marine Dreadnought
AND THAT’S NOT ALL!
The set will ALSO include:
1– Ork Warboss
2– Ork Boyz Mobs (20 models total)
1– Ork Nob Mob (5 models)
3– Death Koptas
GW have not included metal miniatures in boxed sets for many years now, so I am guessing that if this listing is accurate then we will see plastic Deffkoptaz!
Of course this is a rumour and it has been rumoured that there would be a plastic Killa Kan or Ork Dreadnought included in the box set.
However we might see plastic versions of all the models on the release of the fifth edition of Warhammer 40K. Note though that the teaser in this month’s White Dwarf was of Space Marines versus Necons, not that that means anything but you never know!
